Wensum Albion FC – Calendar Boys – Counterfeit Classics

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 This is what football is really about
Dreaming the dreams shown on someone elses screen
Every schoolboy plays at Wembley
On that immortal field of green

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We all pretended to be Pele
Brady, Best, Cantona or Moore
Whoever we were when we played
We were fairytale-bound to score

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 No velvet carpet of bladed tufts
Just puddles patched upon tarmac
Ambition and enthusiasm
But nets, boots and skill we lacked

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The boys of Wensum Albion
Decided to have a bit of fun
Re-enacting ‘Hand of God’ and ‘Dentists Chair’ (and others)
To raise money for club funds


It’s a welcome change to get a laugh from football in the current phase.
Good luck boys.
